N-Power beneficiaries in Ekiti state have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for providing them an opportunity to serve and be 'gainfully employed'.
These youths said the opportunity as N-Power beneficiaries, has given them a lifeline from the ravaging graduate unemployment in Nigeria.
The president of the Ekiti state N-Power beneficiaries, Darasola Oladimeji, said the federal government's initiative has brought hope to many youths across Nigeria.
Oladimeji while speaking at the maiden anniversary programme of the group in Ado-Ekiti said the monthly N30,000 stipend and provision of electronic devices for the beneficiaries across the country has gone a long way to keep Nigerian graduates enlisted in the scheme away from criminal vices.
Describing President Buhari as “a man who is on a mission to tackle the poverty rate in Nigeria”, Oladimeji urged the federal government to ensure beneficiaries get permanent jobs or financial assistance at the end of their two-year programme.
He said the financial assistance would help entrepreneurs among the beneficiaries set up their businesses.
